Zip-Zip-Zippy! This wire hair terrier, about 9 years old, just loves laps, butt scratches, and car rides. He also walks nicely on a leash and he would enjoy daily walks with his new family. Zippy's favorite type of company would be older teens and adults, especially if they are ladies! He can be selective about his doggie friends, so if you're thinking about adding Zippy to your family then please bring everyone in to meet him. Zippy would make a great lap dog or social companion for an older person looking for a friend to love. Come on over and let Zippy charm you. His sweet and sometimes spunky personality would defiantly make your day.
Esperanza, 4, our diva short haired cat, is sweet and sour. She is very independent and does not require much attention. For the most part, Esperanza just likes to do her own thing. Some of the things she enjoys are long laps, big fluffy bedding, catnip, wet food and feather toys. Boy does she like her wet food. Esperanza is one of our chubbiest kitties that we have. When she plays, she will waddle across her room and stand on her hind legs to catch the toy. It is definitely a sight to see. Come out and meet this big sassy kitty. Maybe she can have some catnip so you can really see how funny she can get.
